Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available and this makes them efficient and preferred by private customers and businesses alike.
Enclosed auto transport is a preferred solution for sports and high-end automobiles. It offers complete protection from weather and road elements. However, it could take a bit longer to book and schedule. It is more expensive as well.
Both open and enclosed trailers work for any luxury automobile, but before deciding what is best for your car, let us delve into the advantages of either.
When it comes to the time frame of delivery, you need to keep in mind that standard means no dates are guaranteed. Whether you book open or enclosed, dates are always estimated because in logistics many variables affect schedules and deliveries. Expedited service is an option, however. It is a solution that could guarantee pick-up or delivery dates, but it costs a premium.
Open auto transport is the standard vehicle shipping service. An open carrier is less expensive due to the fact that it is readily available across the US. Depending on the type of trailer, it can fit up to ten cars, which makes it efficient and fast.
Enclosed auto transport is the preferred shipping option for high-end automobiles. An enclosed auto carrier provides complete protection from all weather or road elements. This, however, makes it more expensive. This option can also be a bit slower because there are fewer enclosed carriers in the country.
Whether you choose open or enclosed that will depend on the type of vehicle being transported. For international auto transport please call our team.
